. >> in fact, more than 180 people were transported to 11 hospitals and the fire department here at sfo, there are three stations here, had no warning. all they were told, there was a hard landing. they had no warning of any distress. so when they arrived on the scene and saw the plane broken up, they had to go into action immediately, but they were not prepared for that. and san francisco airport is running at half capacity. there is some talk they will try to open up one runway -- one major one and one minor one are affected. as of right now, san francisco is running at half capacity. they hope to get one of the runways open today to move this process along. the entire process here probably won't be done for 5 to 6 days as they go through the crash site and remove all the debris here, as this investigation goes forward and the investigation itself, we are told, you won't hear back for potentially 8 to 9 months before we know for sure what happened. but we will get preliminary information from ntsb, later today in a press conference. >> back to you. >> thank you very much. >> fox news

for the past couple hours. i've called sfo, the tsa. i've called literally everyone. i even called sf pd and i've called general hospital in san francisco. nobody has been able to assist me in any way, but coincidentally, a news team has just picked me up and is trying to get me past all those security lines to reunite with my dad as we speak right now. so -- >> so what are you saying, you would like better information? or them to be more reactive? >> they could have contacted maybe the families first before anybody else. especially for, you know, people that they've identified for a crew and passengers. they could have at least, you know, tried to reach out to the families, let them know they're okay or how this procedure is going to work. because so far, i don't know how to get into the airport, i can't get into the airport even if i wanted to. i didn't know where he was located. and thank god his phone is on, because nobody else has been really been in contact with my family. >> yeah. i know that i would be very upset if i had a family member involved. you understand, i'm sure, there's chao
